Motion Graphics in Music Videos: Love Stoned

Sleek use of a simple visual device.

I know I’m late but I just saw this Justin Timberlake video and was floored by the sleek use of a simple visual device: The audio waveform in black space. This literally gives you an idea of what the song looks and feels like and it managed to keep my attention all the way up to that end part.

Anyone know who did this?

Andrew Davies

Drew's degrees in Illustration, 2D animation and Broadcast Design, and his volleyball skillz mean he can get your design done and play well with others at the same time. He’s the Creative Director at Paragon and will call you out if you start hanging out with shady-looking fonts and messing around with whacked-out color palettes.

    Oh, very sleek.

    Directed by the same guy who did Gnarls Barkley’s “Crazy”, Robert Hales. You’re going to like this part… He’s a graphic designer.

  2. Amazing Video. Looks like the end may have been focus grouped to death… or maybe it was apart of the deal. The artist could do whatever he wanted for the first 2 minutes but at the end the artist had to get face time. Kind of an abrupt change but still a great music video.
